Contributions: Tricks, traps and strategies presentation
Author(s): Peter BURGESS
This paper discusses the introduction of the new 15% contribution 'charge' for high income earners and the emergence of alternative funding strategies in a low contribution cap environment. The way the 15% contribution charge will be assessed and collected is discussed along with the excess concessional contribution refunding measure which has recently been passed into law. This paper also addresses recent AAT cases involving excess contributions and the outlook for off-market transfers in the wake of recent Government announcements. The ATO’s compliance approach to in-specie contribution reserving strategies and the use of contribution suspense accounts is also covered along with many other topical contribution issues.
SMSFs and related party transactions: Issues and opportunities
Author(s): Con GOTSIS
Related parties and the rules that control the nature of a SMSF's interaction with them would probably if surveyed amongst superannuation professionals be an area of superannuation law that is in practice the most complex to deal with and understand.There are many misconceptions about how these rules apply. This paper runs through a number of case studies to identify opportunities and also to highlight issues of concern.
With the ability for taxpayers to commence a pension upon attaining their preservation age, there are numerous opportunities and strategies available to consider. However, pension strategies within a fund also need to be considered carefully in light of the minimum (and maximum) pension requirements, as well as the estate planning implications. This paper outlines some of the main strategies with respect to pensions, as well as the areas to be aware of and consider in detail to ensure that the advantages of such strategies are not lost.
